How to Give

Operating Fund

Giving to the Operating Fund isn’t simply about keeping the lights on – the Operating Fund is the financial backbone of Holy Trinity. These funds are what keeps the parish ministering to you and to our community on a daily basis. And it’s all made possible by you.

Making a Pledge

A pledge is a financial commitment to the Operating Fund over a specified period of time (typically a calendar year). Pledging is critical in the annual cycle of Holy Trinity as it allows for necessary financial planning and offers stability of our shared community.

Support a Specific Ministry

You may also give to a specific ministry, initiative, or community program. Examples include: Sandy Lane Elementary Backpack Program, Laundry Love, Outreach, Rector’s Discretionary Fund, Altar Flowers, Music Program, Sanctuary Audio/Visual Renovation Project, Memorial/Bequest, and Cursillo.

Estate Giving

Including Holy Trinity in your Will is a wonderful and faithful way to engage in Estate Giving. These kinds of gifts see the greatest impact on capital improvements to our facilities and property, growing our endowment, and ensuring the long-term financial stability of our congregation. Estate Giving may also include: a life income gift, such as a pooled income fund, a charitable gift annuity, or a charitable remainder trust; gifts of real estate; closely held stock; life insurance; retirement accounts; and more. If you are considering an Estate Gift, or would like more information, we invite you to contact our Rector, the Rev. Daniel J. Lemley

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

– Hebrews 13:16

Special Gifts & Other Ways To Give

Gifts of Securities and Stock Transfers

Appreciated Securities and Stock Transfers make a fantastic gift to the Holy Trinity. You may be eligible to take advantage of a two-fold tax savings. First, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. In addition, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Contact the church office to inquire further.

Gifts of Real Estate

If you owned your home, a vacation home, acreage, or a farm for many years, a charitable gift of that real estate can be especially tax advantageous. The property may have so appreciated in value over the years that its sale would result in a sizable capital gains tax. If given to the parish, you avoid the capital gains tax and realize a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the real estate. It also removes this large asset from your taxable estate. Contact the church office to inquire further.

Gifts of Life Insurance

If you own a life insurance policy that is no longer needed, it could be the perfect gift vehicle for a year-end charitable gift. You can contribute a life insurance policy either by declaring Holy Trinity as the owner of the policy or simply the beneficiary. It’s easy to contribute a life insurance policy – just check with your life insurance agent for details on which forms to complete. Contact the church office to inquire further.

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA)

Although the rules concerning Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) tend to change from year to year, the overall benefits of contributing to Holy Trinity directly from your IRA remain intact. Giving some or all of your RMD to Holy Trinity could be a tax-advantaged way to contribute. Contact the church office to inquire further.
